Tower Park-based motor dealership, Breeze Volkswagen is searching for a rising star of the future as part of the 2014 Rock Star Awards.

As sponsor of the Rising Star of the Future Award, Breeze Volkswagen is looking to acknowledge an outstanding employee, aged between 16 and 26, of any Dorset-based company and is encouraging employers or colleagues to put forward their nominations by Saturday March 1.

The winning employee will be recognised for achievements in the early stages of their career and for their contribution to the company they work for.  An employee that stands out from the rest by displaying great ambition, innovation and drive to become leaders of tomorrow will be crowned the winner.

Entry is free and nominations are invited by colleagues and managers that are working with someone they feel are a rising star.  The Award entry will need to detail why the nomination is being made, for example ways they have benefited the business, new ideas or initiatives they may have introduced, examples of excellent customer service and any instances of simply going that extra mile.

John Corderoy, managing director at Breeze Volkswagen, says: “We are delighted to sponsor the Rising Star of the Future Award.  This category is an excellent way to find and celebrate driven, committed and passionate individuals who are ensuring a bright future for themselves and the business they work for.

“At Breeze Volkswagen we strive to achieve the highest levels of staff satisfaction and loyalty and as a result we have a strong, unified and committed workforce that is focused and enthusiastic towards delivering first-class service to our customers.”

Angela Fletcher, managing director at Rock Recruitment and founder of the Rock Star Awards, adds: “Harnessing the career aspirations, ideas and developing knowledge of bright young staff is a shrewd way for local businesses to develop an enthusiastic, committed workforce. It is great to see Breeze Volkswagen supporting this.  I look forward to judging this category with the motor dealership and finding an employee with an excellent work ethic and potential to make them our winner.”
